While The Grey book has everything that made the film the great it also has something else going for it, it is it's own piece of literature. The film was adapted from the short story, "Ghost Walker" and it would have been easy for Ian Mackenzie Jeffers to just expand the novel with the same plot points the film added, but he doesn't. For example, where the film has to rely heavily on expository dialogue between the survivors in order to get the point across, the book relies mostly on the inner monologue of the hero himself, Ottway. In fact, the survivors barely ever say more than a few words to each other. The book also fleshes out and tweeks Ottway's backstory without killing the mystique and grit that Nesson brought to the character on screen. Through Ottway's bleak put poignant Heminway-esque take on the world, Jeffers expands on the theme of man's struggle to face their human condition with dignity and grace. In short, I couldn't happier with the book and it decidedly literary, not cinematic, focus on storytelling.

If you only read one thing this year make it The Grey. I've been waiting to read it since the movie came out, which was brilliant. What I love about it is that it's an easy, great read that keeps you involved and at the same time it speaks to some of the most basic questions of life and death. Absolutely worth it!

Really great book - you can see that the whole tone of the movie and the way Liam acted the role came from the quality of the writing. If you liked the movie you will love this book!

Having seen the movie (which I would highly recommend) I decided to jump straight into the book and I was not disappointed. The plot line and intensity of the characters is every bit as engaging as the big screen version. This is not just man meets wolf in the wilderness or another survival yarn, but a much deeper presentation on the subject of mortality, personal struggles and morality . That being said, in homage to Jack London, it is both gripping and very enjoyable.

This is a great book and they made a great film out of it as well (check it out and keep watching what happen after the credits).
The story is your average survival horror but when "the horror" is nature it is so much more realistic, the mean character is a battleaxe and the fight for survival escalates to such an extent and at such a speed that will make your head spin.
I loved it, not a masterpiece but worth every cent and more.

i found this book to be very entertaining after watching the movie
the movie was accurate to the book but i found the book more in depth and descriptive, a short
story which was a joy to read. After i was intrigued by the movie i wanted to read the book as
I believe it was based on a true story. I also learned about the unpredictable behaviour of wolf
packs which surprised me in their persistance throughout the story

I haven't seen the movie but love the book! Think is a great read very adventures. I can hardly wait for the movie. It is a great tale of survival in brutal circumstances. A plane crush throws a few men into wilderness with not only death waiting, personal struggles and man's struggle in general.It is a action non-stop read.I had to get used to the writing but once you get into it it's fun reading.Great story, very entertaining!
